Resident supports Bourke as next Orleans County sheriff

Posted 30 May 2019 at 9:12 am


I write to stand in strong support of Chris Bourke in the upcoming Republican primary for Orleans County Sheriff. Although Sheriff Bower will be sorely missed, Chris is the perfect successor to this vital position.

Chris has spent his entire life and his 35-year law enforcement career in our county. He knows us, the county’s law enforcement needs, and has many years of leadership experience within the Sheriff’s Office.

I respect his opponent’s law enforcement experience. I would point out, however, that it has all been in urban environments – Rochester and Lockport.

This June 25th primary is important to our county’s future. I encourage all eligible voters to do their duty – get out and vote!
